Crude Tattoo of the Scarlet Soul

Aura faint necromancy; CL 3th; Slot –; Price 225 gp; Weight


Various red and orange hues make up a tattoo of a burning pyre; it radiates a small amount of heat.


Anyone bearing the tattoo gains 1 point of cold resistance as the tattoo constantly generates an uncomfortable warmth. The tattoo’s full effect triggers when the bearer perishes, causing it to rapidly burn away their skin and creating a conflagration. One round after the bearer perishes the fire animates and forms a small fire elemental – the elemental acts on the deceased character’s initiative score and considers all creatures as hostile. The elemental lasts for a number of rounds equal to the HD of the creature bearing the tattoo.
